9th September, 2016 (999) and what it means to us all.

2016, as an overall year 9, brings to us all the vibrations of 9. Nine is about completion, of reviewing our lives and letting go, clearing the way for new beginnings, personally, nationally and globally. Nine stands for, humanitarianism, compassion, philanthropy, idealism and tolerance. Nine is both self-sacrificing and self-sufficient in its march towards progress and the fulfilment of our personal and national vision.

It is perhaps apt that in the UK we are having a referendum on our remaining within the European Union. On 1st January 1973 (1+1+1+9+7+3 = 22 a master number) the UK joined the European Common Market and a retrospective referendum was held on 5th June 1975 (5+6+1+9+7+5 = 33 another master number) confirming our entry. Now this 9 year we are holding a referendum on 23rd June 2016 (2+3+6+2+0+1+6 = 20 2+0 = 2). In the Tarot 2 is often about making choices and these choices will affect us all for a very long time to come.

Nine paves the way for completion and for evolution to the next phase, whether it be to come out of what is now a European Union or to go forward into a United States of Europe. Nine holds the spiral of happy returns because all numbers multiplied by 9 always reduce back to 9 thus symbolising the return to the source of the divine. So 9.9.9 can be seen as imparting the energy of creation, of the unification of opposites and the beginning a brave new world. Like everything else these energies apply to us all, physically, emotionally, mentally, spiritually as well as individually, nationally and globally.

Most religions and many scientists believe that numbers carry the hidden meanings and secrets of the universe. In the ancient worlds of Greece and Egypt 9 was believed to be the number of man. It is the number of the hierarchy of angels and has been linked to Hecate, the Greek Goddess of the Crossroads and magic. Also the God Juno the Roman goddess of Abundance and Odin the father creator of Norse mythology. The Pythagoreans called 9 the Ennead, and in Hinduism 9 is the number of the Creator Brahma. The biblical 9 is the number of judgement, it is also believed to mean the fruit of the spirit, divine completeness from the father. 999 is also thought to be just short of the perfection of 1000.

So is there an area in your life that you have been procrastinating over? Is there something that you know you need to bring to completion if you are going to be able to walk through the next door that opens for you?

Science tells us that everything that ever was, is and shall be is happening Now. Our present is created from our past and our future is created from our NOW. So the 9th September, 2016 will be a triple number tripling the energies of compassion, humanitarianism, idealism and tolerance enabling us to come to completion and begin creating something new in 2017.
